Stranger Issues Foreshadows One Character’s Loss of life

As if we would have liked extra proof that Vecna has been lurking in Hawkins because the starting of our “Stranger Issues” journey, followers just lately noticed a clue in season 4 that foreshadows one character’s dying approach earlier than it occurs. Whereas folks create limitless fan artwork and petitions to mourn Eddie Munson’s dying, one not-so-beloved character just lately caught the eye of Reddit consumer hunimpressed. “Caught this on my rewatch. I see what they did there,” the consumer wrote over a display screen seize from “Chapter Two: Vecna’s Curse.”

The scene, which takes place within the second episode of season 4, options Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) at a celebration together with his fellow basketball teammates, a bunch of jocks fronted by wealthy athlete Jason Carver (Mason Dye). “First hangover feels such as you’re gonna cut up in two,” Jason tells Lucas after the staff exit consuming collectively.

“That was such an underwhelming and random method to go after so many episodes of build-up.”

Throughout the season finale, Jason walks in on Lucas and Max (Sadie Sink) throughout their mission to take down Vecna in Victor Creel’s (Robert Englund) attic. Enraged over the dying of his girlfriend, Chrissy Cunningham (Grace Van Dien), Jason pulls out a gun and threatens Lucas — who he believes is behind the supernatural deaths in Hawkins — insisting that he wake Max up from the spell she’s beneath. After a wrestle, which incorporates Jason pinning Lucas to a wall by his throat for a number of seconds, Lucas is ready to struggle Jason off, punching him a number of instances till he falls unconscious onto the attic flooring. Minutes later, a gate to the Upside Down opens throughout Hawkins, ripping straight by means of the Creel home. Because the gate splits open, it cuts immediately by means of Jason’s physique on the attic flooring, disintegrating his torso and actually splitting him in two.

For a number of followers who adopted Jason’s loosely constructed villain storyline all through the fourth season, the character’s dying was underwhelming. Actually, many followers missed his dying on the primary watch and needed to rewind the episode to catch it. “That was such an underwhelming and random method to go after so many episodes of build-up. didnt even do something worthwhile both, besides struggle and get beat up by lucas (who doesnt even know the right way to struggle),” wrote one Reddit consumer. One other added, “That is what Jason deserves, he would not get his ‘hero’s’ dying that you just assume he’d get.” Others had been extra glad with the writers’ ending for the jock. “Are you kidding it wasn’t underwhelming he might have actually killed Lucas and I believed that. Fairly satisfying to see him die like that,” one Reddit consumer continued.

For others, the morbid irony of Jason’s dying left them deeply uneasy. “Jason is a misunderstood character,” one Reddit consumer mentioned. “Let’s be trustworthy right here, in case your GF get killed and a man is accused and have actually a giant cause to appears responsible, you’d get mad too. He’s proven to not be a foul particular person, it is simply not his perspective that we’re watching the collection. He’s really not that flawed. That mentioned, i used to be at school instances extra like Eddie than Jason, and Eddie is a extremely relatable character.”

Whereas most followers agree that Jason was a complicated antagonist at finest, many who’ve rewatched the start of season 4 can agree that having a personality foreshadow their very own dying is a fairly chilling send-off. (But it surely might have been worse.)
